Synopsis

Naked Trevor by Rebecca Elliott

Meet Trevor! He's no ordinary bird. In fact, if you peel back the novelty leaves, you'll discover he's completely naked! It's a well-kept secret that all birds are actually naked, but every morning they put on their feathery clothes and go about their day. Trevor doesn't want to conform with feathered society and refuses to wear his sparrow outfit, much to the horror of his family. In a quest to find his own unique look, Trevor crashes into a pile of sticky mud and colourful flowers. He ends up looking the best he ever has, inspiring the creatures around him to shed their own boring outfits!

Reviews

'As well as the concept, I loved the looks from the other birds and animals, as well as all the little captions that were on every page, which gave the other characters depth to their personality.'

's Reading Corner 'This is a fun book - kids will love it, it's slapstick, there's a naked bird who has some rather funny moments, and a show of camaraderie in the end! ... It's the kind of story that is simple, but very entertaining.'

.co.uk Trevor the sparrow doesn't want to get dressed in his feathers.Instead, much to the shock and horror of his feathered relatives, he wants to stay naked. After trying to persuade Trevor that he should put on his sparrow costume, Trevor goes off in search of his own unique outfit, with interesting results. This fun story is brought to life by the characterful illustrations, drawn by award- winning illustrator, Rebecca Elliott. -- RACHEL NEWCOMBE Baby London Trevor is no ordinary bird. If you fold back the leaf flaps, you will find he is completely...naked! 'Oh good gracious!

. Starting with the fact that all young birds are born featherless and naked, this amusing story plays with this idea as Trevor is the only fledgling who insists on staying this way, much to the annoyance of his fellow creatures. However, Trevor finds it hard to do something birds take for granted-flying. Amusing antics unfold. Will Trevor find his feathers? Read on and find out! Lots of fun. -- Carolyn Boyd The School Librarian

Rebecca Elliott

Always the eternal daydreamer and doodler Rebecca Elliott's school project from the age of six has in it the line “When I grow up I want to be a writer and an artist”.

She has also written about her own children, one of whom has severe special needs, in her books Just Because and Sometimes which have been met with accolades from former children’s laureates Jacqueline Wilson and Michael Rosen, five star reviews and much media coverage from, amongst others, The Independent and Radio 2.

Rebecca also teaches adult courses on writing and illustrating children’s books, regularly visits schools and runs workshops for children at events including the Edinburgh Literary Festival.

She lives in Suffolk with her ‘inspirations’ - her husband Matthew, a history teacher, and three children, Clementine, Toby and Benjamin and continues to spend her days doodling and daydreaming.
